Barn Owl Malt
Barn Owl Malt is a craft malt producer and brand of brewing grain ingredients. Using a traditional technique, floor malting, Barn Owl Malt processes 100% Ontario grown grains, barley, wheat and rye, into craft malts for craft brewing. Malting is a necessary step for local breweries to use local grains. Malted grains provide the colour, body and fermentable sugars for beer. Barn Owl Malts are sold directly to craft breweries, craft distilleries and homebrewers across Ontario.
We are proud to showcase the true potential of Ontario craft malts as high quality, specialty malts. Our malts perform well in the brewhouse with exceptional extract potential, yeast nutrition and diastatic power, while providing excellent flavours and aromas. We design a unique floor-malting and kilning schedule for each grain stream to maintain a high level of consistency in our finished products. All of our grains remain traceable to the Ontario farm where they were grown. Our malts are processed right here in our malt house, un-blended. We are currently producing pilsner, lager, pale ale and munich barley malts, as well as soft red wheat and rye malts.
Our malt house is not open to the public, for purchase please contact us via email; or visit our website for a list of homebrew supply shops that carry our malts as well as local craft breweries currently using our malts.
